Bakers Cyst
« on: May 04, 2006, 06:18:19 PM »
I am looking for help on a bakers cyst. I had a partial knee replacement in December, and have had continuing pain in the back of my knee. I went to see my OS yesterday and he thinks that a bakers cyst is causing all of the problems. He gave me a medrol dose pack adn told me to come back in a week. If it is not better they will talk about apritating it or removing it.

Does anyone have any information on backers cysts, or had a similar expereince?
Thanks Melanie

Thanks for the links. I have read everything on line I can find. I was hoping that someone who had been through the process with a bakers cyst could help.

My Baker's cyst apparently resolved with all the swelling in my knee (4/05 - ACL rupture, mcl tear, medial mensicus tear, bone contusions, joint effusion). I remember the area being quite prominent with the result that I zippered the skin behind my knee into my riding chaps about 3 months after the injury. Now the cyst seems at rest...Ellie

Thanks for the reply. Mine is getting worse. I went to my OS this week and he gave me a medrol dose pack (steroids)  and said if it didn't get any better, to cmoe back next week and would decide to aspirate it of surgically remove it. I really don't wan teither one of those options, but I want it to feel better.

Thanks,
Melanie

I don't think there are other options than aspiration or arthroscopy, and I too am not too excited about either one so I have elected to not have either for the time being.  Sorry i can't be of more help.
